    2 is legal- I was told by a fuel company I could only haul 2 legally has to be under 1000 pounds of fuel- which 2 drums is less than 800- your state could have different laws and tunnels and bridges also have certain restrictions.

    It varies from state to state. You cannot carry more than 21 gallons of fuel in MA without a permit.

    it was posted on some Mass firefighting website. fire code *527 CMR 8.2* "gasoline or other flammable petroleum products may be transported without a permit in any open vehicle or compartment of a closed vehicle not to exceed 21 gallons"

    Where did you get the fuel? Logan? I found it much cheaper off RT 24.

    I've hauled a 55 gal drum lots of times with out ever a thought. If you have to worry about stuff like this, its a sign your govt has gotten to big and too powerful.
